Editorial Reviews

Kingdom Airwaves - Victor Gentile
 “Lily’s Plight” is a great read, filled with drama, romance, history and suspense.  I recommend this book highly.  I am sorry to see this series end but I am looking forward to more from these very talented authors. 
Miss Pippi Reads - Miss Pippi
Out of the three Daughters of Harwood House books, Lily's Plight is my favorite.

Laity and Crawford address the dangers of battle and how families in the early settlements needed to work together to succeed. The struggle with faith, love, and family are woven throughout the novel. It was a beautiful conclusion to the Harwood family.

My Shelf - Linda Morelli
This was a satisfying conclusion to an enjoyable trilogy set in the early days of Colonial settlement. An avid history buff, I thoroughly enjoyed the inclusion of the American militia’s struggle against invading French and Indians, the tense action between the Indians and homesteaders and the struggles our early colonists faced.  I most enjoyed the deep emotional battles that Lily and John faced on an almost daily basis. They feel guilt, pain, reaffirmation of faith, and a myriad of other emotions. The authors have done an excellent job in writing a gripping historical page turner, filled with anxious moments and, ultimately, the peace and love that two people can find with God’s grace.
RT Book Reviews
The final installment in the Harwood House series is a gripping adventure yarn and a poignant, satisfying against-all-odds romance. The authors breathe vibrant life into a lesser-known period of colonial history, presenting memorable, engaging characters...

Mel Mac's Reviews - Melissa Macdonald
An excellent read that really can be read as a standalone. You won't regret picking this one up...unless you like to sleep at night and not read :)
Reviews By Jenilee - Jenilee Goodwin

I have really LOVED this entire series! This is the third book and I highly recommend reading the first two books. By the third book, you have fully invested in the characters and are very interested in every aspect of their stories!
Central New Jersey Jane Austen Society of North America - Amelia Rodriguez
The writing was great and I got pulled into the story. This is a book I would really recommend if you want a good but light historical fiction to read. I am going to go back and read the first two.

    Sally Laity & Dianna Crawford in their new book, "Lily'

    Sally Laity & Dianna Crawford in their new book, "Lily's Plight", Book Three in the Daughters Of Harwood House series published by Barbour Publishing, Inc. brings us into the life of Lily Harwood in the turbulent 1757.

    From the back cover: Their greatest challenge is yet to come.

    Lily Harwood always considered herself a good Christian lass. But after years of serving the Waldon family, and despite the fact that she loves them dearly, her life has grown increasingly difficult and frightening. Daily she watches Susan Waldon's health deteriorate, and with John Waldon away with the militia, protecting them from attack by the French and Indians, Lily is responsible for the entire farmstead.

    Ever since John's last child was born over four year's ago, he's had to watch helplessly as his beloved wife suffers with a mysterious and debilitating illness. And because of the drawn-out conflict, he's torn between wanting to be with his family and knowing that thwarting the enemy on the frontier is the best way to protect them.

    But when he returns home on a short furlough, both John and Lily face a deeper more profound plight. They find themselves falling in love. Caught between passion and sorrow in harrowing times, their only hope lies in the promises of God...

    The Dictionary defines "Plight" as, "a solemnly given", or, "an unfortunate, difficult, or precarious situation". Lily Harwood lives up to both definitions. She gave her solemnity or promise to serve in the Waldon household and her situation is proving difficult as she is now in love with a married man. Can you imagine selling yourself into servant-hood to pay off your father's debt? Lily's sister Rose thought so and the three sisters came from England to America to do so. Rose and Mariah's stories were told in the previous two books, now it is Lily's turn. I like history and "Lily's Plight" is loaded with it. It is set against the background of the French And Indian War and Lily is an indentured servant trying to hold together a family that is seemingly falling apart. Lily has come to love this family however she has come to love John more and this is dangerous because he is married to Susan. Can she remain pure while the war happens around her and her own emotions threaten to overwhelm her? I won't give it all away except to say that the thrill ride that this story turns out to be has some real surprises before we find out that answer. "Lily's Plight" is a great read, filled with drama, romance, history and suspense. I recommend this book highly. I am sorry to see this series end but I am looking forward to more from these very talented authors.

I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255: "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising."
